Community outreach has always been an integral part of the physical therapy program at Governors State University.

“Service to the community is very important. The more information we share and the more people we help, then the better off everyone is,” said Dr. David Diers, professor ofphysical therapy at GSU.

Diers, Dr. Dale Schuit, another professor of physical therapy at GSU, and Kyle Waterson, representing METT Physical Therapy in Chicago Heights, presented a continuing education unit on the care and treatment of runners at a recent meeting of the Illinois Physical Therapy Association, East Central District.
